True to place. True to grape. True to self.

Handcrafted Wines by Etienne Terlinden

Inspired by the viticultural areas of Santa Barbara County, I gave birth to Cordon of Santa Barbara in 2001. My goal was – and is – to create exceptional wines that honor tradition; wines that are handcrafted with modern state-of-the-art techniques and, in all respect to my European roots, a very certain old world sensibility; wines that have a true sense of place, balance, elegance, character…and, of course, wines that taste great in concert with good food.
